Introduction On the morning of February 19, 2009, the State Legislature finally adopted a budget plan covering the next eighteen months The plan covers 2008/09 and 2009/10 It calls for tax increases to provide more revenues for the State, borrowing, and budget cuts But before we get too excited: The voters will be given a say Combining both State and Federal resources will be difficult with the number of unknowns still remaining 1
Resources for the State $14.4 B in “Temporary” (24 months) revenues Increase sales tax by one (1) cent Increase Vehicle License Fee to 1.00% Increase State income tax by 0.25% Reduction of the dependent care tax credit Income tax surcharge of 2.50% Could be extended to 2012/13 if voters approve spending cap change Special election is scheduled for May 19,
State Borrowing $6 B in Revenue Anticipation Warrants (RAW) Three conditions must exist to sell RAWs The State must have a sustainable, balanced budget with all required statutory changes enacted prior to selling the RAWs The must have a plausible plan for repaying the RAWs in the subsequent year There will have to be legislation enacted prior to the sale of the RAWs that protects the RAW holders $5 B from Lottery securitization $0.4B Transfers and loans from special funds 3
Education Cuts for 2008/09 Reduces current year Prop 98 appropriation Program reductions$2.3 B Previously funded COLA (.68%) Remaining Half Revenue Limit Half Categorical Programs 4

Federal Stimulus How much will be available to help District directly? Unrestricted Support Special Education State Bailout Federal Funding School Improvement Grant Title I Lots of questions How much? When will it arrive? Is there flexibility? What kind of projects? Can we reduce District support to Special Ed.? Can we use dollars to help with class sizes? Can we use Title I to help with class sizes? Title I Flexibility 18 * No School Renovation, Repair resources per SI&A
Building a Strategy v.
Creating Capacity Capacity is the ability to retain staff and programs Categorical capacity may be possible after considering the impact of the reductions in Tier III Where is there other capacity: JAESC Reductions Funded with Categorical Resources Deferred and Routine Restricted Maintenance Federal Support for Special Education Title I – New Federal Dollars Prior Year Sweeps K-3 Class Size Reduction Penalties 19
Addressing Suggestions The Food Service Program lives within its income subventions Cutting the program would cause a loss of revenues to the General Fund making our problem worse Reducing the number school days below 180 days would be catastrophic financially According to the California Department of Education, Education Code requires that a penalty be applied to the State funding allocations for a drop in days from 180 to 175 If the drop in days continued into the next year there would be a total loss of State funding Any drop below 175 days would cause a total loss of State funding The Bridge Program is a voter approved State program This program will not help the District financial situation if the program were eliminated Quality Education Investment Act (QEIA) results from a settlement of a lawsuit between CTA and the State If the District choose to remove itself from the program 100% of the State funding would have to be returned 20
Closing Remarks The next step in the process is to calculate the impact of the new State budget plan on our District Examine the use of the flexibility options provided See how the Federal flexibility folds into a strategy for building a balance budget Rolling that strategy into our process and timelines We expect to bring that work back to the Board at the next study session Finally, cash flow is still a problem 21
